WILLIAN wants to join David Beckham’s Inter Miami.
The Brazilian is set to leave Arsenal this summer after a disappointing spell in north London and fancies moving to South Florida.
SunSport understands Miami boss Phil Neville wants to sign the 32-year-old but knows it will be difficult to offload Mexcian international Rodolfo Pizarro first.
Pizarro is one of the highest earners and a designated player yet has failed to impress Neville who is already eyeing a busy time in the transfer market once the window opens.
Willian will command big MLS wages – former Juventus and Real Madrid hitman Gonzalo Higuain earns around $5million – so Pizarro will need to be sold despite a lack of suitors right now.
The Mexican international, signed by former boss Diego Alonso, was left on the bench last weekend with Federico Higuain preferred in midfield.
Willian has endured a torrid time at the Emirates since the Brazilian signed a three-year contract at the club last summer.
The ex-Chelsea star, who is reportedly on £220,000-a-week at Arsenal, has managed just one Premier League goal for Mikel Arteta's side this term.

Much more was expected of Willian after his six-and-a-half-year stint at Stamford Bridge, where he won the FA Cup, League Cup, Europa League and two Premier League titles.
The Gunners have confirmed another former Chelsea player, David Luiz, will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season.
And midfielder Matteo Guendouzi is reportedly close to signing for Ligue 1 side Marseille.
The Frenchman has spent the 2020-21 campaign on loan at Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin after falling out of favour at the Emirates.
